"So you've taken guns out of the hands of responsible owners, lowered the overall number of guns out of the population, but concentrated the illegally used or possessed guns."

I fail to see the logic of this. No one has taken away a single legally owned gun. Legal and responsible gun owners will take the necessary steps to own weapons - how does this take anything away? Legal drivers get licenses, legal cars are registered, legal sportsman get hunting or fishing licenses. And, by eliminating permissive gun shows and the patch-work of gun laws we have now, fewer illegal guns in future are in circulation - the concentration argument is DOA.

So now that we've all staked positions, had a good healthy dialogue... it's up to us all ("we the people") to move forward with ideas. What can we suggest to our leaders as possible ideas for improving this situation?
